Not too bad
2 March 2006 | by bryan-318See all my reviews

It was delightfully amusing. I expected something much different considering the title of the movie. (Reference Along Came Polly). This one is worth a watch!!! The character development was nicely done, and the actors easily portrayed their respective parts with delicate expertise. Kudos to the director for using each individual's unique qualities to bring a very unrehearsed feel to the storyline. The end was quite different than what I had come to expect. I was still waiting for someone to produce a true SHART! It was a bit more cerebral than that however, but I think a Shart could have been thrown in tactfully.

It seems that ten lines of text will be difficult to produce here without throwing in a spoiler. I guess commenting more on the director is in order. This is the second film I have seen from the same director and definitely much more my favorite. The Hindu films are interesting to watch in the fact that production differs so greatly from films produced in the United States. I would highly recommend someone view this film if it is your first "Hindywood" production; it will certainly whet your palate for more.
